The Lesser Known Ralf Schumacher

The 2007 season proved to be a tough one for Ralf Schumacher. It also turned out to be his final campaign with Toyota, the team he joined in 2005, having previously enjoyed six Grand Prix wins with Williams.
Having tested for Force India at the tail end of 2007, there is still a question mark over whether Schumacher will return in 08. Nevertheless, he remains one of the sports most famous faces and during the course of last season we caught up with him to discover a few home truths about the German driver…

BMW Sauber target first win in 2008

Following McLarens exclusion, the team eventually finished second in the standings, behind world champions Ferrari. With both Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld retained to race next season, the team believe everything is in place for even greater success in the future.

Heidfeld: TC ban to make races ‘more thrilling

BMW Sauber driver Nick Heidfeld believes that rule changes for the 2008 season should make for more exciting Grands Prix. Heidfeld predicts that the ban on traction control will lead to more dramatic race starts and ensure more overtaking.

Countdown to launches gets underway

Although 2008 may be less than a week old, the Formula One teams are already looking forward to the coming season and many have plans in place to launch their new challengers this month.
Ferrari are expected to kick off proceedings at their Fiorano test track this weekend with their F1 2008. The Italian squads latest design, the successor to the championship-winning F2007, is due to be unveiled in Italy on Sunday, ahead of a shakedown run the following day.
